Celebrating Liberal Arts Education

On September 17 in Indianapolis, Wabash and the College’s Center of Inquiry in the Liberal Arts gathered leaders from across the nation in education, philanthropy, law, medicine, and business to celebrate the value of liberal arts education.

The conference at the Indiana State Museum featured highlights from the Center’s Wabash National Study of Liberal Arts Education. That study followed 17,000 students at 49 different institutions through their four-year college experience and identified qualities that lead to positive outcomes in liberal arts education.

“The Center has been a huge benefit, not only for private liberal arts colleges, but much more broadly for higher education,” said former Teagle Foundation President Robert Connor.

National experts in their respective fields led discussions on leadership, ethics and diversity, innovation, and opportunities in the future for liberal arts colleges. Read more in “Leaders Value the Liberal Arts.”
